Florrie Buckley is an orphan, living on the wind-blasted moors of Cornwall.
It’s a hard existence but Florrie is content; she runs wild in the mysterious landscape. She thinks her destiny is set in stone.
But when Florrie is fifteen, she inherits a never-imagined secret.
She is related to a wealthy and notorious London family, the Graces. Overnight, Florrie’s life changes and she moves from country to city, from poverty to wealth, from Florrie Buckley to Florence Grace.
Cut off from everyone she has ever known, Florrie struggles to adapt while learning the rules of a strange new world.
And then she must try to fathom her destructive pull towards the enigmatic and troubled Turlington Grace, a man with many dark secrets of his own.
